I finally got around to writing my review of the interesting Leo Bodnar display lag tester. Using the tester turned up some interesting results, not least of which was the discovery that my wonderful, supposedly lag-free TV wasn’t actually as lag free as the other reviews on the net have claimed. If you’re thinking of adding a lag tester to your AV toolbox, you can read the full review here.
In other news, I solved my PC display problems, turns out the DVDO Edge Green doesn’t like to display a 59.94hz image from the PC. It’ll handle 60hz just fine, but not 59.94. I have confirmed this with two different graphics cards (GTX 580 and GTX 680). Why this is I do not know, I doubt DVDO’s tech support would know either. Perhaps the timings are that bit out on the PC that it causes problems for the Edge. 59.94hz is the standard for TV’s (Xbox and PS3 also output at this frequency) and since Windows likes to adhere to what the EDID says on a display, it’s actually pretty hard to force a game to display at bang on 60hz rather than 59.94.
Anyway, you don’t care about that, you just need to know I’ll be going back to writing my guide to getting X-Wing Vs Tie Fighter working over on Play-Old-PC-Games.com 🙂
